Subject: Oh No! Bozo Gets SHOT!
This film, which details the 1961 Polio vaccination program of Columbus, Ohio (!) is quite interesting content wise, but REALLY drags down when someone speaks, as they look like deer caught in tail lights. Anyways, the program is documented by people who obviously need some sort of public speaking training telling how important this program is. Then the film picks up by showing the many ways the program was promoted, from radio broadcasts, posters all over the city (on street signs, which is fascinating, as this is illegal today) to (yes) Bozo getting vaccinated on television (somewhat surreal shot as bozo rolls up his sleeve to reveal his normal arm). Anyways, police department gravely warn about the traffic jams that will ensue because of the stampede of people (really, he does) and then the program starts, while there are people lining up in some shots, the hysteria of the policeman is unfounded. And then we see a seemingly endless parade of people having shots. The narrator promises that all kids get a balloon, yet we see kids that DON'T! Those bastards! Reccomended, at least for the 2nd half.
